Artek Beehive Pendant A331
The A331 Pendant Lamp by Artek was nicknamed as "Beehive" lamp and was first introduced in the interior design of the University of Jysäsklä. The light from the Beehive is diffused through the brass or chrome rings, and is a sculptural piece even when unlit. The A331 was designed by Alvar Aalto: "The Beehive lamp has been the most popular home lighting item in the Artek range."
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.
